Tennis: Federer picks Djokovic as favourite

Roger Federer believes Novak Djokovic is the favourite to win the Australian Open title in Melbourne tomorrow night.

The four-time champion is out of the tournament after losing in five sets to Andy Murray.

Federer says even though Murray beat Djokovic at the US Open, he gives the edge to the defending champion.

He says Djokovic has won the last two titles in Melbourne and is in really good form again this year.

Roger Federer says Djokovic's extra day of rest will also be an advantage.
